This is an interesting brew that looks to seduce with exotic notes of Mexican chocolate, dark cherry, smoked paprika and dark cocoa powder. The aromas transition to the mouth, almost like a molé sauce with less heat. The creamy mouthfeel is balanced with moderate carbonation, leaving the subtle chili heat to unfold on the finish and loiter at the back of your tongue after swallow.
